    Officiant Ann McKenzie

    David and I loved meeting with Ann. She’s very warm and personable. We were delighted to know that she customizes and tailors to specific couple (if desired) I can’t wait to see what she writes for our wedding. No photos posted as our wedding has yet to happen.

    Exactly what we wanted!

    We had a very small at home wedding and Ann provided exactly what we were looking for. She was prompt, professional and made us feel so comfortable. I couldn’t have imagined the day going any better.

    Beautiful ceremony

    Ann officiated our wedding yesterday and it was an absolutely beautiful and personal ceremony. Ann is a great person to work with. She really cared about making sure the ceremony was tailored to us.

    Thomas Wedding

    Ann was wonderful to work with! I loved everything she wrote for our wedding. We are not super religious and she was able to write something that really spoke to us and was appropriate. She was very patient with me (the bride) when I kept having to reschedule our meetings due to my grandfather's death in the beginning. Her kindness really meant something to us. Thank you Ann!

    Personalized & meaningful ceremony!

    We were so lucky to have found Ann to officiate our wedding! She was very accommodating to exactly what we wanted for our ceremony and suggested several unique moments to include that made it extra special for us and our family. She was very easy to work with and made it all a breeze. Thank you, Ann!

    Best wedding officiant

    Travis and I were so fortunate and blessed to have had Ann officiate our ceremony! Ann was on top of everything from start to finish. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for Travis and I that captured all the moments leading up to our wedding that told a story of us. Ann is professional and organized, I never once had to worry if something was being taken care of because she was reaching out to me before I even had to worry about it. Highly would recommend Ann McKenzie as a wedding officiant! She truly loves what she does!

    Wonderful, personalized ceremony

    Ann was a wonderful officiant for our recent wedding. Ann met us in person, got to know us, and outlined how she would put together a ceremony. She made sure that the ceremony was true to us, and allowed us to add our personal stories and anecdotes to the ceremony. Ann was very easy to work with and did an outstanding job.

    Put me at ease

    Ann was a great choice to officiate our wedding. Our first meeting was great and put our minds at ease about the process. She was open to including anything that we wanted in the ceremony. She was very responsive to all questions and always answered back the same day (sometimes within the hour). She has a very laid back approach which was perfect for us!

    Highly Recommend

    We highly recommend Ann as a wedding officiant. From the first time we met her and throughout the entire process she made my husband and I feel very comfortable and was easy to open up to. She customized the entire wedding ceremony to fit our personal love story. Despite some unexpected harsh weather that threw a wrench into our plans, Ann kept things calm and light, kept the ceremony flowing, and ensured everyone remembered what the day was all about. We had a fantastic wedding and Ann was a big part of it.

    Highly recommend! Ann was perfect!

    We met Ann at a wedding expo. To be perfectly honest, I was a bit worried about choosing someone we didn't know previously, especially since our wedding was LGBT, but based on our short interaction with her and her Wedding Wire reviews, we decided to take a leap of faith. Boy am I glad we did!

    Ann officiated our wedding and she was spectacular. She took a lot of time to write a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted. We wanted to keep scripture out of the service, but still bring in elements of religion/spirituality from our two separate religion. Ann was able to accomplish this perfectly and write/deliver a really powerful ceremony that everyone loved! I think every single person attending our wedding came up and told us that the ceremony was the best they’d ever been to. Ann stayed for a bit after the ceremony and she had a line of people who were waiting to talk to her - everyone really enjoyed her. We couldn't have asked for anyone better and wouldn't have changed a single thing!

    Kevin,
    It was truly an honour to marry you and Chris. The guests were honestly the most attentive I have ever seen. It was obvious that everyone there loved you both. They laughed at all the funny moments and cried at the tender ones. I enjoyed staying for a glass of wine and visiting with them after the ceremony. The joy they felt at your wedding was easily seen. I can not thank you enough for allowing to be part of your special day.

    Ann was awesome! She was very professional, kind, and detailed. She wrote a beautiful ceremony for us that really captured our story and our personalities. I could not have asked for a better officiant and would recommend her a million times over. She was always available, and timely with responses when needed.
